I was wondering today what our ponies are living on.

The track is bare; the field is pretty short and they have two hours on the grass each morning and evening; they all get a small feed twice a day when they come off the grass and 3kg of hay between them at night, in the hay boxes.

Smokey and Bugsy aren't rugged, although Sheba is - at 23 she deserves a bit of comfort. None of them are losing condition. Natives must really live on fresh air,although none of them are doing any work.

Sometimes, I feel a bit sorry for them and have been tempted to up the hay, but they don't need it yet, so I'm forcing myself to hold off.

they're snorting in nutrients from the sea air.
